ABC45 Business News Update: Bike Safety with David Daggett


Thank you for joining us for this ABC 45 business
news update. I’m Candace Blanchard. Joining me today is David Daggett with Daggett
Shuler. Welcome. Thank you for having me, Candace. Today’s topic is very near and dear to your
heart, motorcycle and bicycle safety. Yes. I’ve spent a lot of time on the road on a
bicycle. Interestingly, there’s been some changes in
the law. Motorcycles and bicycles are similar in many
ways, visibility is the most important thing. The biggest change in the law is North Carolina
is historically had what’s called the two foot rule, meaning cars have to give cyclists
two feet when they pass. There’s now a four foot rule, so four feet
when a car passes a bicyclist, all aimed at safety. It’s also put some other responsibilities
and obligations on cyclists, so this goes both ways. It’s more complicated than we have time for. Just be aware, visibility and safety is the
number one thing on the road. We hope it never happens to any of our viewers,
but if for some reason they are involved in an accident, what should they do? They should get an experienced attorney who
knows how to get compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, miscellaneous expenses
to take care of them and their families. Well, thank you so much for educating us on
this topic, because I know it’s very important, and it can be life-changing. Yes. So, thank you for being here. Thank you. And thank you for watching this ABC 45 business
news update.
